Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Teye Partey has been named in Arsenal’s 33-man squad for a pre-season tour of the United States of America (USA).
An earlier report by the Times had suggested that Partey and two other first-team players Bernd Leno and Folarin Balogun would miss out on the trip.
However, all three players were named in the squad which departs London today. It will be recalled that Partey missed out on a recent trip to Germany by Arsenal, fuelling speculation about his unexplained absence from the squad.
Arsenal leaves London on Wednesday 13th June, 2022 courtesy of Fly Emirates. The players will touchdown in Baltimore, Maryland for the first leg of the tour.
After 5-1 and 5-3 wins over Ipswich Town and 1. FC Nurnberg respectively already this summer, Arsenal first game in America will be against Everton at 7pm local time (midnight UK time) this Saturday.
The following day it’s a short flight down the east coast to Orlando, Florida where the Gunners will face Orlando City next Wednesday (7.30pm local, 12.30am UK time) before their tour concludes against Chelsea on Saturday, July 23 (8pm local, 1am UK time.
